PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The Franklin Institute unveils a new exhibit this weekend inspired by the hit TV show “CSI.”

(Audio from television show, “CSI.”)

You won’t see any of the familiar faces from the show, but you will be able to examine clues, deadly wounds, and evidence, just as they do.

“You start with one of three different crimes,” he explains. “You walk to the crime scene, pick up clues, and enter the forensic science lab and test the information that you’ve picked up to see if you can figure out what was the crime — really, whodunit and what should be done with them once you’ve actually caught them.”

It’s a new riff on an old exhibit, which was called “Whodunit?”

“This one is now many more years advanced, much more sophisticated,” Snyder says, “and combines the great storytelling of the CSI television franchise to enhance that experience.”

The Franklin Institute has also set up additional hands-on programs and live shows to complement the exhibit, which opens Saturday and runs through January 2nd, 2012.
